Reviewed 18 Aug 2018

The location of this cottage is fantastic, right on the beach with a beach locker, so you don’t have to bring your sandy bits inside the house. The Cottage is beautiful and has everything you need. We have stayed twice now, and we will definitely be returning.

My son booked Sandpiper for three days as a getaway for my 60th birthday. The accomadation was five star and in an amazing location. We would love to have done more but it was a relaxation break. Visited the Eden project which is a must. The coastal path walk has the most spectacular views and can easily take up a day. Relaxing at Sandpiper and watching the waves is hard to beat. All in all a fantastic break and it is a place I will be returning to. Thank you to Adele the owner for sharing it.

Response from the owner Thanks for celebrating your 60th with a trip to Sandpiper Cottage, we're pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and the stunning coastal location. The coastal path provides the most incredible location for walks from our doorstep, drinking in the amazing sea views and fresh air. The Eden project is fabulous and a day out we always enjoy too. I hope you'll come back and enjoy better weather, Cornwall baked in sunshine is unbeatable. We are pleased to offer a 5% rebooking discount. Have a great year being 60! Best wishes, Adele

Response from the owner Lovely to read your fantastic review, we completely agree with your sentiments 'Heaven on Earth'. Hope you'll be back again to wander more of the scenic coastal path. Best wishes, Adele

“Comfortable and stylish in a stunning location”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2016

This beach fronting holiday accommodation is perfectly presented and conveniently located. It is new and beautifully furnished with comfort and style. Porth beach is between Watergate Bay and Newquay town. We stayed there for a family wedding at Watergate Bay hotel but also enjoyed walking along the coastal path, beach combing with our grandchild and sightseeing in Padstow and Newquay.

Response from the owner Thanks for your lovely review. We are glad you found the property was conveniently located for your family wedding at Watergate Bay, whilst also allowing easy access to the gorgeous coastline to the North and South of Porth. It sounds like you fitted a lot into your 4 day stay. Thanks for booking with us. Best wishes, Adele.

Had a lovely stay in beautiful Porth Beach. The house was excellent, fully equipped and very modern, exceptionally clean too. On the beach in under a minute! Enjoyed it so much that we hope to do a return trip.

Response from the owner Thanks for your lovely review, it's great to hear how much you enjoyed the comfort of the property and beach side location. Thanks also for your rebooking, we look forward to welcoming you back in 2016. Adele

“Perfect Location, Clean, Modern, Comfortable......what else do you want?!”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2015

As said above! The owner was very helpful, clear and efficient in communication. The location was beautiful, a lovely short walk from the town centre and a stones throw away from Porth Beach. You can also take a beautiful walk along the cliffs to Watergate Bay. All facilities were great in the house. Nice and spacious and very comfortable. My family and I throughly enjoyed our stay and will more than likely return! Get off the fence and book it folks!

Response from the owner Thanks for your super review, I'm glad to hear the booking info and communication we provided in advance was appreciated. Fantastic to know you enjoyed your stay at Beach Sandpiper, and made the most of the fabulous walks and coastline this area has to offer. We hope you will return to this lovely part of Cornwall.

“Fantastic property right next to the beach”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2015

Our family spent a week here and loved the property and the location. The cottage is new, spacious, well designed and beautifully furnished, with everything included that you could want including excellent wifi, a fully equipped kitchen, a good stock of games and DVDs and helpful guide books and maps of Cornwall. There are great views of the sea from the balcony and dining area. Porth was an ideal base for exploring other parts of Cornwall - we were within easy reach of Padstow, the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and St Ives. The property is in a fantastic location, just a one minute walk from the sandy beach at Porth, so we were able to fit in plenty of time playing on the beach as well as lots of day trips out. The beach was ideal for children and not too busy even over the bank holiday weekend and school holidays. We were also able to have several walks along the coast straight from the property, exploring the rock pools and rocky headland at sunrise and sunset. Overall I would highly recommend this property!

Response from the owner Thank-you for your glowing review of Beach Sandpiper. We are thrilled to know you enjoyed the cottage and area as much as we do. It sounds like your family explored many delights of Cornwall, whilst also appreciating the fabulous beach and spectacular coastline on the doorstep. We're pleased you had a wonderful holiday.
